Peace No War Campaign
The Peace Club at the University of Otago initiated the “Peace No War” campaign with the primary objective of promoting peace and denouncing war, particularly the ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia. As part of the campaign, the club collaborated with students from both the University of Otago and Otago Polytechnic to create a series of short videos and conduct interviews. The videos aimed to highlight the importance of peace, educate viewers about the current state of affairs, and encourage them to take action towards promoting peace and ending war.
The campaign’s message resonated with many students, and the videos and photos generated a considerable amount of engagement on social media. The Peace Club shared these videos and images on various platforms, including Facebook and Instagram, and utilised relevant hashtags to reach a wider audience. The content’s reach and engagement went beyond the University of Otago community and caught the attention of individuals and organisations interested in promoting peace and ending war worldwide.
By encouraging students to share their thoughts and opinions on the ongoing conflict, the campaign provided a platform for constructive discourse on issues related to peace and war. Through this approach, the Peace Club aimed to inspire individuals to take positive action towards creating a more peaceful world. Students who participated in the campaign shared their experiences and perspectives on the conflict, which helped others understand the situation better and gain a broader perspective on the issue.
